raditions are the passing of information, beliefs, and customs by word of 

mouth or by example, from one generation to another. West Virginia 

I Wesleyan College has many unwritten traditions which are continued as 

each year passes. 
Wesleyan students enjoyed participating in a wide variety of these traditions. 
Many of the most popular traditions were seasonal, such as Orientation, 
Homecoming, Christmas on Campus, Spring Sing, and Graduation. Several of the 
Wesleyan traditions definitely exceeded the expectations of the campus 
community. For example, Christmas on Campus was a community service event 
which benefited the children of Buckhannon and the surrounding area. 
Graduation was a timeless tradition which honored the graduates of Wesleyan at 
the end of spring. Events such as these are engrained in the institution of West 
Virginia Wesleyan College. 

Greek Week at Wesleyan 
definitely brings out 
some of the best facial 
expressions the student 
body has to offer. As 
Theta Xi competes in the 
tug-of-war competition 
several of the brothers 
cheer on their teammates 
to pull harder. Greek 
Week is one of the most 
popular traditions for the 
Greek organizations. 


Left: Spring Sing is a tradition at Wesleyan like no 
other. It is a time when the campus organizations 
get an opportunity to show off their musical 
talents. A theme is voted on by the student body 
and then announced during Homecoming 
Weekend. The groups then perform in the chapel 
and are Judged based upon ditVerent criteria. 
(For more on 2004 Spring Sing see pages 12 and l.'l.) 

Above: Welcome Home: Homecoming in the 
Hills 2004 was the theme for the traditional 
homecoming weekend. October 1 5- 1 7 saw several 
exciting events take place. On Friday, registration 
and the James Myers golf classic occurred. 
Saturday was busy with such events as the spirit 
walk, football game, coronation ceremonies, and 
the alumni banquet. Finally, the weekend 
wi'apped up with the annual Homecoming Chapel 
Service. Photos bv Paul Roncone 

Nothing brings out the Christmas 
spirit at Wesleyan like the annual 
Hanging of the Greens. Several 
Wesleyan students volunteer their 
time to help decorate the Chapel 
for the holiday. 

From Founder's Day 

Convocation to the halftime 
ceremonies. Homecoming at 
West Virginia Wesleyan is a time 
of excitement and anticipation for 
current students and alumni.

Wesleyan traditions represent a wide variety of 
campus life activites. From orientation to 
graduation, the Wesleyan community celebrates a 
full academic year from August to May. 
Highlighted traditions include Greek Week, 
Bacalaureate, Graduation, and Orientation. 


Whether on the playing field, 
in the classroom, or singing in 
the choir, Wesleyan students 
receive recognition for their 
outstanding performances.

college's mission for students 
who exceed expectations.

_j Homecoming 

he weather was not favorable; however, the game was exciting and the 
fans were rowdy because it was Homecoming. The rain was 
overshadowed by the death of a classmate and friend Scott Stein. The 
football team responded in Stein's absence as they, and the rest of 
campus, dedicated the weekend to Scott and won their game. 

I was fortunate enough to win Homecoming King and I could not have been 
more appreciative. Kristen Buttermore was crowned Queen; Kristen and I were 
lucky enough to get the only rays of sunshine the entire day during the halftime 

The team played great and exploited WV Tech in the second half, which turned 
into a blowout; the fans were there for it all, amongst the hail storms. This 
Homecoming was a day that could have been miserable because of the events 
preceding that day; however, the campus turned misery into extraordinary. As the 
weekend was dedicated to Scott, the campus family became closer. Homecoming 
at Wesleyan was something that every student would remember for a lifetime!

hristmas on Campus is an annual tradition at West Virginia Wesleyan 
College. Christmas is a season of loving and sharing, and Wesleyan's 
students showed this like no other. Christmas on Campus is a special day 
set out of the Christmas season in order to show a love for the children of 
Upshur County. 

The day involved hours of planning and activites. The organizations of WVWC 
set up booths, each of which had a different activity, such as face painting and 
making Christmas decorations. The children were able to go to each booth and 
spend their day making various crafts and playing an assortment of games. The 
children were divided into small groups, which were led by volunteers from 
Wesleyan. The volunteers led their groups from booth to booth, and at the end of 
the day, they took them to their special treat-Santa Claus, when each child was 
presented with a bag full of gifts from Santa. 

The excitement experienced by each child during Christmas on Campus was 
what prompted the Wesleyan students to participate. The expression of love and 
happiness caused a sense of pride in each and every person involved.

Homecoming Weekend, an 
announcement was made 
that alumnus John M. Law

My senior year at West Virginia Wesleyan 
has been an amazing experience. There was 
a lot of excitement and anxiety coming into 
this year and it has made this experience 
one of a lifetime. I was not sure how I 
wanted to remember my senior year or how 
I would leave my legacy. I had certain goals 
that I wanted to achieve before I graduated 
and I was worried if I could achieve them all 
before I left. Well, I think this year went 
above and beyond what I was expecting...

Class of. . 

Only at Wesleyan did I find teammates who worked 
with me, sisters who supported me, friends who 
laughed with me, and a man who loved me. I did not 
expect all of this to happen, but somewhere between 
puUing all nighters and writing my senior thesis it did 
happen. I never imagined playing soccer with All- 
Americans, but my teammates were. I never thought 
going to Chi Phi one night would lead me to mister 
right. I never expected to be in a sorority, but I love 
every single one of my sisters and will forever. I 
know that where ever I go in life it is because of the 
education I received here both in and out of the 
classroom. I learned about communicating and 
politics, but learned more importantly about Ufe. 
Every experience at Wesleyan, good and bad, has 
helped shape me into the person I am today. It is 
because of the wonderful professors, the diverse 
students and the community that lives here that will 
help me achieve my dreams.

In Memoriam 

en. tors 

...At the end oi^ my junior year, I was 
elected to serve as the senior class president 
and was also chosen as the pledge master for 
my fraternity. Both of these positions were 
going to take a lot of time. However, each 
one of these positions has given me 
something that I will cherish long after my 
graduation. I have also been fortunate 
enough to share my experience with high 
school students by serving as a campus 
ambassador. To top it off, my fellow 
students selected me as the 2005 
Homecoming King. 1 was extremely 
shocked and humbled to receive such an 
award. I was flattered that my classmates 
held me in such high regard. I coasted 
through the rest of the year and had nothing 
else exciting happen. This year would still 
go down as one of the best years of my life.

Each and every student on Wesleyan's 
campus can have a sense of belonging 
in any of the 80 plus organizations the 
college offers. An organization fair 
held at the beginning of the school 
year helped new students identify the 
various groups; there was something 
for everyone. 

Wesleyan's organizations allowed 
students to broaden their overall

the West Virginia Wesleyan College

outstanding 123 West Virginia

The Bobcat athletes and coaches have 

also garnered numerous other awards

two of the last three conference championships, 
the cross country teams have repeated conference 
titles, and the soccer teams have been dominate 
not only in conference but across the nation in 
Division II. Every fall and winter sport at 
Wesleyan has had special recognition for 
outstanding athletic performance in the West 
Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

The West Virginia Wesleyan College football team ended a rough 
season with its third straight loss. Although the Bobcats finished 
over .500 (6-5, 4-3 WVIAC), a third place tie was not exactly 
what Wesleyan followers had anticipated. 

Beginning the season at home against a suiprising Wingate 
University team, the Bobcats dropped the opener for the third 
consecutive year, but the loss was no cause for won-y as the 
previous two championship campaigns had also started under 
similar conditions. 

Although the Bobcats did not win a third straight conference 
title, they still had some individuals receive special recognition. 
Three West Virginia Wesleyan football players were named to the 
2004 Daktronics All-Northeast Region Team. 

Seniors Alan Krutulis (Stewartsville, NJ) and Jared Surbaugh 
(Ronceverte, WV), along with sophomore T.R. Dues (South 
Charleston, WV), were among 12 WVIAC players chosen by the 
region's sports information directors. Krutulis and Surbaugh 
were first team choices and Dues was a second-team pick. 
Linebacker Krutulis and back TR Dues were also picked as 
members of Don Hansen's Football Gazette 2004 Division II 
Ail-American Team. Knitulis and Rachid Smith (Baltimore, 
MD) represented the Bobcats in the East Coast Bowl. 
Expectations for the future of Bobcat football remain high.

The WVIAC has gone multinational, well, at least in terms of the 
men's soccer all-conference squads. The first team alone represents 
nine countries and four states by itself with only one selection 
hailing from the Mountain State (Charleston's Stanton Smith). No 
matter the origins, the most important fact is that the Bobcats 
placed six athletes among all three lists. 

Sophomore midfielder Bond Phittayasri (Bowie, MD) is the 
lone Wesleyan star on the All- WVIAC First Team, one of only three 
total top honor repeat selections (WJU's Jade Jones, also the player 
of the year, and UC's Smith). Phittayasri proved pivotal in holding 
down the center of the 'Cats midfield with his aggressive on the ball 
defending and quick-strike counter-attacking ability. 

Senior attackers Dino Dozgic (Eastbourne, England) and 
Stephen Fielding (Brighton, England), and sweeper Brad Mills (Elk 
River, MN) formed Wesleyan's AU-WVIAC Second Team 
contingent. Dozgic's 22 points (eight goals, six assists) led the 
Bobcats offensive assault followed closely by Fielding's five goal^ 
and half a dozen assists (16 points). Mills, a converted midfielder, 
did much to solidify the 'Cats hackline and spur attacks from the 
defensive third with well place long balls to his awaiting forwards. 

Junior marking backs Chris Crews (Wheeling, WV) and Cheikh 
Sow (Dakar, Senegal) earned All-WVIAC Honorable Mention 
recognition. Crews often drew the assignment of shutting down the 
opponent's top offensive threat, a chore he seldom failed. Sow's play 
opened the eyes of many this season and definitely caught the 
attention of opposing strikers" with his almost impassable defensive

Normally, when people hear the phrase "some things never change." it's put 
into a negative context, but this case serves to the opposite. Although it wasn't 
represented by a player of the year or coach of year this season, Wesleyan 
women's soccer continued its strong run of all-conference perfonners by 
notching four selections on the WVIAC first team and another spot on the 
second team. 

Senior strikers Shellie Cotton (Charleroi, PA) and Sarah St. Clair 
(Morgantown. WV) were joined by defenders Mary Abu Bakir (Altadena, CA) 
and Jackie Deutsch (Charleroi, PA) on the All-WVIAC First Team. Midfielder 
Kasie Thomas (Buckhannon, WV) was the lone Lady 'Cat named to the All- 
WVIAC Second Team. 

Cotton, the 2003 WVIAC Player of the Year and 2001 WVIAC Freshman 
of the Year, earned her fourth first team honor but did so playing a different 
role. In season's past. Cotton was the most feared striker in the conference, but 
her experience and playmaking ability better suited this year's squad in the 
midfield. With that said, her eight tallies and six assists were enough to push 
her atop the Wesleyan all-time scoring lists with 62 goals, 34 assists and 15S 
total points. 

St. Clair, a 2002 and 2003 second team selection, led the LBC vMth 1 1 
goals this year. Her 30 career assists have her tied for second all-time in 
Wesleyan liistory. As a tribute to her athletic abilities and academic prowess. 
St. Clair is in line to earn her second straight selection to the CoSIDA National 
Academic All-America team. 

Abu Bakir and Deutsch quite possibly are the top tandem of central 
defenders in the conference. Abu Bakir provides speed and aggressive man on 
defending while Deutsch is powerful, hard-nosed and fearless in an\ 
confrontation. Both being sophomores, the Wesleyan faithful should expect 
repeat performances for the next two seasons. 

Thomas, a senior and honorable mention winner in 2003, is a true left side 
wing player, a rarity in soccer terms. Blessed with amazing speed and a 
powerful left boot, very few outside backers could contain her push down the 
sideline. Thomas finished the season with two goals and five assists.

Support of any kind is welcomed by all athletes, no matter the 
sport. Wesleyan cross country certainly felt at home as Camp Virgil 
Tate was flooded with a sea of Bobcat parents and students, lending 
Wesleyan a rare "home field advantage" away from Buckhannon. 

Aside from orange and black paint that literally covered them 
from head-to-toe, the Wesleyan track and field athletes who made 
the trip to Charleston wore t-shirts with creative slogans like "Get ur 

Done" and "Don't you wish you were Jesse's Girls" to spur on 

their beloved Bobcat cross country cousins. How true they would 
prove to be. 

Head Coach Jesse Skiles' Lady Bobcat cross country athletes 
became the envy of the WVIAC by narrowly edging out the favored 
Alderson-Broaddus Lady Battlers 36-37 to capture their third 
consecutive conference title. 

The men's team, racing with only half of the normal squad due 
to injury and other circumstances, leap-frogged over Wheeling 
Jesuit in the pre-race rankings to finish third behind first place 
Concord University and runner-up Alderson Broaddus. 

The ladies title marks the 31st overall WVIAC crown for coach 
Skiles, more than any coach in conference history. Wesleyan's long- 
time mentor also secured his 27th WVIAC Coach of the Year 

With outstanding performances from both the men and 
women's teams, both earned a spot to the regional meet. The 
women finished ninth out of 25 teams with an average time of 
23:48. The men's cross country placed 16th out of 26 teams with an 
average time of 36.07.

If you see a wanted sign up in front of the Wesleyan volleyball 
office, don't get the wrong impression. They're in need of some 
extra shelf space. 

Thanks in part to both an outstanding regular season and 
impressive individual efforts, four Lady Bobcats earned AU- 
WVIAC honors on the conference first or second teams. The junior 
trio of middle hitter Michelle Clelland (Richmond, VA), setter 
Jackie Murphy (Richmond, VA), and right side attacker Kaitlyn 
Shumate (Prince Frederick, MD) were all named to the All-WVIAC 
First Team while sophomore outside hitter Caitlin Smyth 
(Richmond, VA) was rewarded with a Second Team All-WVIAC 

Clelland, a 2003 second team selection, finished second in the 
conference in hitting percentage (.372) and in the top ten in blocks 
per game (1.35/g). Both totals led the way for the Lady Bobcats. 
Murphy, also a 2003 second team honoree, finished with 10.22 
assists per game (1,012 in 99 games). The combination of Clelland 
and Murphy on quick hitters was nearly unstoppable for all 
conference opponents this season. 

Shumate, the 2002 WVIAC freshman of the year and second 
team selection each of the last two campaigns, finished fourth in the 
conference with a .326 hitting percentage. She also racked up 1.01 
blocks per game and 2.68 kills per game. 

Smyth, a transfer from Armstrong Atlantic College, finished just 
out of the conference top ten averaging 2.90 kills per game. She also 
accounted for 2.57 digs per game.

The 2004-2005 swimming season was eventful! to say the 
least. Aside from two senior women, Wesleyan had an extremely 
young team. The men went undefeated in the conference in duel 
meet competition and finished behind Fairmont State 
University, while the women were second to Wheeling Jesuit 
University by one point! 

There were 10 conference championship swims with 
countless personal bests throughout the year; in fact, every 
swimmer on the team could lay claim to a personal best at some 
point in the year. 

Coaches were very optimistic about next fall as the team loses no 
males to graduation and are looking to bring in one of the 
strongest recruiting classes in a long time. The women, however, 
are graduating two of the most prolific athletes of this program's 
history. Monica Morin. a four time NCAA national qualifier, 
left behind school records that would be around for a long time; 
while Monica Heinrich an NCAA national qualifier, who owns 
the most team records of any swimmer at West Virginia 
Wesleyan, would leave a void in the sprint and breaststroke 
events that would not be easy to replace. 

Wesleyan will use this team's lack of experience as leverage to 
improve upon in the next few seasons. They will only get faster, 
and with strong recruiting classes coming in, both teams will be 
aiming to win the conference title in 2006.

The 2004-05 men's basketball team started the preseason with very high 
hopes of erasing memories of the disappointing campaign of 2003-04 in which 
the team only managed three wins. With the presence of four seniors. Jelani 
Watson, Lynell Ingram. Jermaine Garrard, and Ted Winovich. the coaching 
staff was very anxious to see what this edition of Bobcat basketball would 

The preseason scrimmages seemed to indicate that this year's squad would 
more than make up for the lackluster shooting performances of the previous 
season. However, it turned out to be "fool's gold" as the playing season 
unfolded. Game afler game, the team found itself in positions to win but 
failed to do so. primarily due to poor shooting, and lack of consistently good 
team defense. The perimeter game which was so crucial to success \irtuall>' 
disappeared. Thus, the Bobcats were very inconsistent oflensively. 

Since the championship season of 2001-02. when graduation took seven 
seniors, it has been a constant struggle to reload with impact players who could 
mentally and physically handle the Division II level of competition required. 
This season saw the team having to rely a great deal on the inexperience of 
eight freshmen, a junior college transfer, and four returning players of which 
only three had extensive playing time. Nevertheless, against very formidable 
opponents, the Bobcats still found themselves in a position to win numerous 
times. Bobcats played hard, but the supporting cast surrounding the two all 
conference candidates, Jelani Watson and Lynell Ingram, never really 
materialized. These two senior players were in the top five in scoring and 
rebounding for most of the season. 

Coaches must express their sinccrest appreciation to the four seniors who 
went down fighting game after game and never lost their zeal and intensity, 
whether in a game or practice situation. .'Mso. Coach Miller's sinccrest respect 
and gratitude goes out to his assistant coach, Chris Chavers. 

If experience has any value at all. it should display itself next season as 
seven players will bring a lot of playing time and \aluablc experience back to 
the court. Those players, Jared Chafin. Cole Ellis, A.J. Mason, Stephen 
Nichols, Dureyea Gamett, Chris Smith, and Brian Inge are expected to take 
the lead in returning the winning ways back to West Virginia Wcsleyan College 
and Bobcat basketball. Copy by Charles Miller, head coach

The 2004-05 edition of the Lady Bobcats proved to be much improved 
over last season's 13-14 record. The ladies finished the season with a 17-12 
overall mark and a WVIAC finish of fifth place with an 11-7 record. The 
team was picked to finish in ninth place in the preseason coaches' poll. 

The Lady Bobcats won two tournaments: the Covered Bridge Classic 
hosted by Alderson-Broaddus and the West Virginia State Christmas 
Tournament. The team was lead by senior post Frances Carvajal and 
sophomore guard Sarah Grab. 

Carvajal broke the single season double-double record with 20 
consecutive games while averaging 20 points and 12 rebounds with a 
shooting percentage of nearly 50 percent. Carvajal scored a career higli 36 
points while shooting 14-20 from the floor against Shepherd University. 
Also. Carvajal was a first team all-conference selection, WVIAC player of 
the week, and first team all-tournament selection. 

Sarah Grab was also a tremendous asset to the Lady Bobcat basketball 
squad. Grab became a 3-point threat for the Lady Bobcats with a shooting 
percentage of nearly 49 percent. Grab averaged 18 points per game while 
being selected as a member of the second team all conference, player of the 
week, and 2005 ESPN The Magazine Academic All District II College 
Division Women's Basketball Team. 

Senior guard Heather Kiiufiman was the floor general for the Lady 
Bobcats starting all 29 games while averaging nearly 30 minutes per contest. 
The Lady Bobcats defeated eventual WVIAC Tournament champions 
Wlieeling Jesuit University 68-63 on their home floor giving WJU their first 
home loss of the year. 

Coach Tiemey commented. "This squad grew closer together as the 
season went on, and achieved more than a lot of people thought they could. 
Led by outstanding leadership, the team was awarded the Sam Marchio 
Sportsmanship Award for the fourth time in five years. Their exemplary 
conduct earned them respect league wide. This team was a lot of fun to 
coach and I thank them for their dedication and hard work."

The West Virginia Wesleyan men's tennis team ended 
its season with a 5-4 loss against third-seeded West Liberty 
State in the semifinals of the WVIAC Tournament. The 
'Cats had advanced through the quarterfinals with a 5-1 
victory over seventh-seeded Fairmont State. 

Senior Paul Nelson was named to the 2005 WVIAC 
men's tennis first team. Playing No. 1 singles and doubles 
the entire season. Nelson finished with an overall record of 
7-4 in doubles matches and 4-7 in singles matches. In the 
West Virginia Conference, the senior was 5-4 in doubles 
and 4-4 in singles. 

The Bobcats finished the season at 9-5 overall, and 8-1 
in the WVIAC. 

The Lady Bobcats were knocked out during the first 
round of the WVIAC Tournament in Charleston, WV by 
the Concord Mountain Lions. The Lady 'Cats long run of 
all conference selections continued as senior Ellen Brosh 
was named to the All-WVIAC women's tennis first team. 
Brosh was the Lady Bobcats' most consistent player this 
season as she competed at number one singles and doubles 
for the entire year, compiling a 6-3 singles record and a 5-4 
doubles mark. 

The Lady 'Cats ended the year 4-5 overall, but their 
competitive finish at the end of the season is a promising 
sign for the 2005 squad.

Hitting and defense were the main ingredients for WV Wesleyan's Bobcats 
in the 2005 baseball campaign. Coach Randy Tenney's 'Cats averaged nearly 
ten hits and more than six runs per game in manufacturing a 24-14 record. 

As a team, the Bobcats belted the ball at a 312 pace, cracking out 354 hits 
in 1.133 official at-bats. 

Defensively, the Bobcats were guilty of only 63 miscues in 1,226 chances 
for a fielding average of 949. They turned twenty-two double plays. The 
pitching corps, although surrendering 4.90 runs per game, proved tough in the 
clutches. In 275 2/3 innings, the "Cat hurlers issued just 91 bases-on-balls. 
while striking out 205. 

Sophomore pitcher-outfielder Eric Stettnisch led the way at the plate with a 
sizzling 386 average. He pounded out 39 hits in 101 trips, including a team- 
high nine doubles and six homemns. He led the squad in runs-batted-in with 

Leading the mound staff was junior right-hander Art Yerecic with a 6-1 
record. He hurled 46 innings, completing three of his seven starts. He 
surrendered 62 hits and 27 runs, of which 22 were earned, walked only eight 
and struck out thirty-five. 

After a slow start, the Bobcats wound up second in the Southern Division 
behind eventual WVIAC Conference champion West Virginia State. 

The Bobcats knocked off the Concord Mountain Lions by a 2- 1 count in a 
"play-in" game to earn a berth in the final four showdown at Princenton's

After taking a one year hiatus from tournament glory. Wesleyan Lady 
Bobcat Softball returned to its familiar spot atop the league by out-gunning the 
West Liberty State College Hilltoppers 8-3 in Saturday afternoon's WVIAC 
Softball Tournament Championship in Vienna. WV. Wesleyan placed a 
tournament-high four players on the WVIAC All-Tournament Team. Sansbury, 
Baise. Keith, and Durst all received recognition for their outstanding weekend 
efforts. Wesleyan's tournament victory marked its third in the last four years 
and 12 th dating back to 1990. 

For the fifth year in a row. Wesleyan was one of six teams in the Great 
Lakes Region to make it to the NCAA Division II Regional Tournament, but 
for the fifth consecutive time the Lady Bobcats left the tourney without a date 
to the national championship. 

In much the same fashion as last year. Wesleyan (42-18) was eliminated 
from post-season play by a two-run single from the Northwood LJniversity first 
baseman in the bottom of the seventh inning. 

In 2004. the Lady 'Cats were victimized by an RBI single in the bottom of 
the eighth inning from Grand Valley State, knocking them out of the 

As impressive a season as the Wesleyan softball team had on the diamond, 
it was easy to forget that all twenty athletes doubled as students. Two Lady 
Bobcats will make such memory lapses tougher for the fiiture. 

Sophomore Kareen Bilotta (Fairmont. WV) and junior Meghan Keith 
(Morgantown. WV) eai"ned spots on the 2005 ESPN The Magazine Academic 
All-District II College Division Softball Teams for recognition of their 
excellence in both the classroom and on the field. Bilotta was named to the All- 
District First Team, while Keith was tabbed for the All-District Third Team. 

The Lady Bobcats finished their season with a very impressive 42-18

with sports participation."

Pittsburgh Pirates and Cleveland Indians. 

Several seniors planned to attend graduate school after 
Wesleyan. Two will attend graduate schools for physical therapy: 
Travis Rummel at Old Dominion(VA) and Krystal Saverino at 
Slippery Rock(PA). Tracy Tutt will attend physician assistant 
school in Maine.
